Drivers in the UK could find that they are disrupted by strike action taken by workers at the Department for Transport, it has been claimed.

What Car? reports that 8,500 employees from the body intend to picket against what they feel is a poor appraisal and pay rise system.

Traffic flow may be affected because some of the people striking work for monitoring centres at the Highways Agency (HA), it added.

As a result, drivers could find themselves involved in collisions due to increased congestion, risking their car insurance policies as a result.

"We are monitoring the situation to see how many staff will take action, so that we can ensure the level of service we normally provide can be maintained," said a spokesperson for the HA.

Meanwhile, Portsmouth News states that 15 months of delays may be scheduled close to Southampton as construction work on the M27 begins.
